About the XSR900
Yamaha’s Sports Heritage flagship, the XSR900, celebrates the company’s rich history. Styling cues linking the XSR900 to its forefathers include aluminium tank covers, aluminium fenders, hand-polished aluminium details, stitched seat, circular instrument clock, circular tail light and retro-style headlight with aluminium stays.
Lurking beneath the heritage façade is 21st-century electronics and mechanicals, including an 847cc CP3 triple-cylinder engine and traction control.
The 2019 XSR900 is available in two new colours – Garage Metal and Vintage Blue and the lucky winner of the raffle will be able to choose their colour.
